Montoya Feels Joyous After Infineon Win

There are 3 comments on the The Associated Press story from Jun 28, 2007, titled Montoya Feels Joyous After Infineon Win . In it, The Associated Press reports that:

“He told me he nearly had a heart attack. I will say that's the happiest I have seen him, maybe he was like that a little bit in Mexico City, but before that it had not been since the Indy 500.”

There was so much buildup for Juan Pablo Montoya's first NASCAR road race, he knew only a victory would satisfy his critics. So when he crossed the finish line for his first Nextel Cup win, Montoya couldn't help but feel relieved.

'So many people thought I would win. It didn't really matter if I thought I would win. Because, yes, we were going to try, but a lot of people just thought it was automatic,' Montoya said of Sunday's win at Infineon Raceway.

'So when it was over, I was just so, so relieved that it was like taking pressure off my shoulders. It was a really big thing for me.' Read more
